Description

For us who use multiple daily builds, easiest way to see when build originated is Time at About dialog.
I see it not there at @39 Windows (that's now back after some time).

It would be nice to have time also in About of bibisect repos. When I run master, how do I know when it was built?

Updated by Timur Gadzo about 2 years ago

Now when we have just 2 Win daily builds (which is enough), Win-x86_64@tb77-TDF/ builds should be named clear and similar to @39: with time in name (@39: master~2019-11-02_00.08.13_LibreOfficeDev_6.4.0.0.alpha1_Win_x86.msi).
It's important when one is using "Separate Install GUI" to see if build is updated, should it be downloaded. That's not the same as time in About dialog, this is in addition.
Now @77 is just "LibreOfficeDev_6.4.0.0.alpha0_Win_x64.msi".

Another issue with @77 is that Current doesn't point to the latest. Today 07.11. Current is from 16.10. and latest is 07.11. So just by looking at Current one might think build is not accurate.

Xisco, what are your thoughts on this? Something for ESC or team call?

Xisco, any thoughts? Can/will/should we do this?

Gentle ping - can you give a quick feedback, Xisco?

Time and date is displayed in dbg builds from https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@86-TDF-dbg/current/ ( see screenshot )
However, the build id is not there. To me, and I think for QA/DEV people in general, it is more important to have the build id than the date and time. Some days, there are more than 50 commits submitted to master

If that is a demand by QA, can you raise that during the next ESC meeting and report back in this ticket?

At least the dbg builds have the date:

Version: 7.2.0.0.alpha0+ / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: e9e41795e6b2bf680a5f74e5684b76af00bf677b
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.7; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); UI: en-US
TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@86-TDF-dbg, Branch:master, Time: 2021-03-02_03:34:22
Calc: threaded

so the solution would be to use '--with-extra-buildid' with autogen

Build ID is present in recent daily builds, same as date, see my comment 9. No need to discuss anything in the ESC meeting

Win tb77 builds don't have it and based on what Steve talked about, macOS builds don't either.

This is a rather old ticket, with a due date in Q4/2020
What's the status of this - still relevant? Who handles it, and by when?

Waiting this one and Task #3063, which was closed as a duplicate but it's not, I add a note:
seems to me that time at https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/current.html is time of build finish, but it should be time of build start?

For example: you see a commit from 05:00 UTC and build from 05:30, one would think that commit is in. But after download it turns out that last commit is just from 00:00, 5 hours earlier.

Next to the time, you have a link to the commit, clicking on it you can see the time of the last commit included in the daily build
